Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned players not in the starting XI not to sulk but support their teammates.

Some Manchester United players are reportedly frustrated by their lack of playing time and are believed to be discontent with sitting on the bench.

Speaking ahead of our Champions tie against Atalanta, Solskjaer said: “We don’t have time for anybody to sulk, if you’re not in starting XI you are there to support your teammates.

“The attitude was spot on (vs Spurs). Players want to play, nobody is happy when they don’t. It is the team before any individual.”

Donny van de Beek and Jesse Lingard are reportedly frustrated by their lack of opportunities at the club and could both leave in January if things don’t improve.

Eric Bailly was reportedly annoyed with Solskjaer over his decision to play an unfit Harry Maguire over him in our defeat against Leicester City a few weeks ago.
